Some great silhouettes you've made here!!
Just a shame you picked a G. Shepherd with a bad back ( I know this is the way you see them at shows but they are also bred with straight backs, these dogs are much healthier)

That's mainly propaganda, actually. :) There are many healthy, good-working show line German Shepherds.

No ,its not. Studies show the slant back causes hip displasia and other problems, just because it looks fine doesn't mean it is.

Oh, really? Could you please link me to those or give me the titles please? I'm always eager for more knowledge on the subject of dogs. I've only seen one study and that concluded that the sloping topline was not related to adverse health problems. I've been privileged to know an AKC "slope-backed" German Shepherd and she has never had issues with their joints. In fact, she could work all day! But of course my views can't be limited to one dog, so any information you could provide would be extremely helpful.

The AKC likes the slant back and when they are younger look fine, the AKC refuses to call back the slant back they wanted for show because if they told the public what it really did, then that would make them look bad. leerburg.com/gsd-gate.htm

Ah, I read your article. It did raise some interesting points. I can personally attest to the fact that the sloped-topline German Shepherd seems to have less balance than other similar breeds. For example, the GSD I mentioned earlier could not turn around on the narrow dogwalk (a piece of agility equipment) once it started, although the Aussies and other medium-large dogs could. It looked like her backlegs were too far back in order to execute such a tight turn. However, if you don't mind, I will mention a few concerns I have on this article as far as proving that sloped-topline German Shepherds are inferior to other varieties.

1. It is not a scientific study in the least, which is a disappointment. Although it has helpful diagrams, there are no statistics. It seems more like an opinion piece than anything else, which is insightful but definitely not the rock-hard evidence I was looking for.

2. The article seems to suggest that the modern American German Shepherd is inferior to the "original" German Shepherd. While I agree that the modern GSD here in the U.S. probably is less suited for working sheep than its ancestors (a bit less balance, maybe), that is not necessarily a negative thing. Very few German Shepherds are actually depended on for work. Nonetheless, some of those that do work (whether by necessity or just for fun) are still very capable of it, regardless of their topline. The American German Shepherd I know is not young by any means, but she has been very successful at obedience, agility, and herding, which require a combination of physical and mental skills. I don't closely know any other GSDs to compare to, so I could be wrong, but she is indeed a healthy and happy American GSD.

3. There is no mention of health whatsoever that I could find, other than the mention that angulation could possibly make the joints more vulnerable to injury. If extreme angulation was actually known to consistently cause or make dogs prone to health problems (such as hip dysplasia) I would have to change my mind on the matter. But so far no such evidence has come up. All German Shepherds, as a whole breed, are prone to hip dysplasia. This is more due to their large size and possibly genetic inheritance than anything else, I suspect.

Anyway, if you can find anything else I might be interested in looking at, by all means let me know. :) Thanks for your time.

vetmed.tamu.edu/services/ortho… , the previous article had the facts on how the AKC wanted the hips to be, loose ,lax etc for the looks.

I'm sorry but that article doesn't even mention AKC or German Shepherd conformation? :? All it says is "There is no single cause of hip dysplasia; rather it is caused by multiple factors, some of which include genetics and nutrition" and once hip dysplasia crops up, it causes laxity in the hips of the afflicted dog.

nice~


just a heads up, the cross breeds folder is for crossbreds like labradooble and so on, so this would go in the Afgan and breeds not mentioned yet folder. i've fixed this for you. i'll also add to the folder name 'multiple breeds'

Pretty neat, though the Irish Wolfhound looks more like an Afghan hound.
